Total Resume Credits: 5 Animation Department Credits, 2 Art Department Credits, 1 Director Credit, 1 Production Designer Credit.

Summary: Born on September 29th, 1966 in Lyon, Rhone, France. Also a comic books illustrator. Brother of French 'house music' composer Etienne de Crécy and of Hervé de Crécy (a 3D animated music videos director). After studying at the Angoulême comics art school, Nicolas De Crécy made his debut in 1987 with 'Bug Jargal', an adaptation of a work by Victor Hugo, adapted by his friend Sylvain Chomet. Then he worked for two years with the French Walt Disney Studios. Meanwhile, he found the time to make the highly acclaimed album 'Foligatto', scripted by fellow Angoulême school artist Alexios Tjoyas. This utterly surreal story about a castrato opera singer in a seemingly eighteenth-century Italian city, immediately made De Crécy one of the most important young comics authors. His baroque, Klimt-like drawings and unusual use of color gave 'Foligatto' its uniquely haunting atmosphere. He teamed up with Chomet again and created 'Léon la Came' in 1995, a masterful satire of the post-industrial society and neo-liberal madness. The first of the trilogy, 'Léon-la-Came' was followed by 'Laid, Pauvre et Malade' and 'Priez Pour Nous', which also feature not only De Crécy's hallmark hallucinatory monochrome images, but story lines of increasing absurdity as well. De Crécy also drew the playful black and white 'Monsieur Fruit' series, as well as the baroque full-color fantasy 'Bibendum Céleste'. Also active in animation, De Crécy worked on the feature film 'La Vieille Dame et les Pigeons', again in cooperation with Chomet. At the publishing house Dupuis, he created the silent comic 'Prosopopus' in 2003, and the absurd antropomorph series 'Salvatore' two years later.

DTVA Debut: Ducktales The Movie: Treasure Of The Lost Lamp (1990) - Animator: London.
Most Recent Credit: The First Snow Of Winter (1998) - Additional Animator.
Total Resume Credits: 5 Animation Department Credits.

Summary: Caron was a talented artist and huge fun to be around. On Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, where I met her, she was always the first to lead a friday night expedition to the local pub, and then beyond to the Camden Palace, where "Rabbit" animators unwound after a week of toil. She was did excellent work on the lead character Jessica Rabbit, one of the most challenging characters on the movie to draw - let alone to animate. Russel Hall, who designed Jessica's final look, set a high bar, but Caron met the challenge and produced many beautiful shots. It was on Roger Rabbit that she met her husband Andrew Painter, with whom she had two children. Andrew, like me, worked as an assistant animator on the film, doing his level best to keep up with the prodigious output of lead animator Simon Wells, who was legendary for producing huge volumes of work for his assistants. Later, Caron worked at many boutique London animation houses like Hibbert Ralph, doing adverts and commercials for TV. But I will always remember her as the animator who brought Jessica to life. Caron Creed passed away after a year's fight with breast cancer on June 3rd, 2014.

Summary: From Maxi Diaz's Blog: Ever since I was little I’ve always loved drawing and telling stories. In my early years I’d devour comic books and be very enthusiastic of one day becoming a good comic book artist. I decided to study Fine Arts in search for artistic training that would allow me to make a living within the comic book world. When I was attending my second degree, I say a poster on the faculty’s bulletin board: Animation studio looking for draftsmen. The studio was called Blue Pencil. I showed up there with my drawings folder and was eventually given the opportunity to start my professional career in the world of animation. I learned an alternative way of telling stories which is nowadays my job and my passion. There I was fortunate enough to meet great professionals in the spanish animation industry of the time and to work on projects such as Walt Disney’s Duck Tales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, Batman: The Animated Series for Warner Bros and Once Upon a Forest for Hanna Barbera, among others. Years later I made the transition to the world of 3D with the El Cid: La Leyenda , feature film for Filmax Animation. Subsequently I worked for several years as animation supervisor at Bren Entertainment, Filmax’s 3D Studio in Santiago de Compostela. Pinocchio 3 k, Gisaku and Donkeyxote, were a few of the projects I worked on as animation supervisor. During the years I worked at Filmax, one of the projects I worked on was recognized for the first time by the Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas. El Cid: La Leyendaand Pinocchio 3000 won a Best Animated Feature Film Goya award in 2004 and 2005 respectively. The next step was to come back to Madrid and work as senior animator in Ilion Animation Studios' Planet 51 feature, which also won a Best Animated Feature Film Goya award. After finishing the project, I became part of the Lightbox Entertainment team, starting out as senior animator and later on as animation director in Tad, the Lost Explorer movie, a project once again recognized by the Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas awarded with three Goya: Best Animated Feature Film, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best New Director. In order to promote Tad, the Lost Explorer , we made a short film called : La Mano de Nefertiti. In this project I also worked as animation director and it was also nominated for the Best Animated Short Film Goya award. After the success of Tad, the Lost Explorer we at Lightbox entertainment created Tadeo News, a scientific educational series where Tad and his friends pleasantly present facts about the human body, geography and other matters in an engaging fashion. We are currently starting to work on Lightbox Entertainment’s upcoming feature film: Capture The Flag. A family oriented space adventure movie that we hope will have the same success as Tad, the Lost Explorer. Currently works for 3 Doubles Productions.

Summary: Tsuguyuki Kubo was the main figure behind the character design side of Topcraft's work. He had started out at Tatsunoko in 1965 as the animation director for Space Ace, where he famously animated the opening of Speed Racer (Mach GoGoGo in Japan), before leaving to form his own studio, Studio Bees, where he did subcontracting for Toei and Tatsunoko, working notably on the likes of Rainbow Sentai Robin, finally arriving at Topcraft in 1972. Topcraft had been founded that year by Toru Hara, a Toei Doga expatriate who after Nausicaa would become Ghibli's early executive producer. Before the company was founded officially they had done a promotional video for Rankin/Bass, which presumably is how Topcraft came to focus almost exclusively on foreign subcontracting for them. Kubo was the character designer of the first of these, the TV series Kid Power, and he would go on to do much of the studio's character designing, giving the studio's work its unique look. Perhaps because of his past experience at Tatsunoko, he was also involved in the handful of the studio's domestic projects, most of which were for Tatsunoko. He also animated a number of TV advertisements for the studio starting 1973. Tsguyuki Kubo might actually be a nickname for Noriyuki since Tsguyuki's Kanji comes out as 窪詔之. Which in romance version comes out as Noriyuki Kubomikotonori (Google reveals one site for Paradise Kiss and that is it.). Mr. Kubo was born in 1942 and Tsgu's debut was key animation for Space Ace in 1965 for Tatsunoko. Then onto Toei Doga Animation with Rainbow Sentai Robin, Maho Tsukai Sally and Pyun, Pyun Maru as continuity design. He also worked the King Kong/Tom Thumb movie (from Videocraft) and was animation coordinator for Johnny Cypher In Dimension Zero (Seven Arts) before finally animating the opening of Speed Racer 1967. Mouse On The Mayflower in 1968 was his final Videocraft credit before he worked with Rankin/Bass (Rankin/Bass and Videocraft are one in the same though.). His Toei Animation credits also include both Gegege No Kitaro series' (1968/1971), Tiger Mask, Judo Boy (under Noriyuki, for Tatsunoko), Akane-Chan, Cyborg 009 (1968), The Secret Of Akkochan and Mazinger Z VS. Devilman in 1973. As for his Rankin/Bass works he did Twas The Night Before Christmas, Kid Power, The Coneheads and Frosty's Winter Wonderland among others along with Thundercats and Silverhawks when he worked for Pacific Animation Company. My sources have stated that he might have even played a hand in the first Frosty The Snowman production; but there is no actual evidence of this. Of course; the entertainment industry during those times were not always putting up complete credits if the production was animated in Japan as evidence by the lack of full credits for TaleSpin and other DTVA productions during the 1980s and even into the 1990s (Kubo is uncredited for the show I should note). His Disney credits are mostly from the Walt Disney Japan side in 1989 with Rescue Rangers, The New Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh and Darkwing Duck along with TaleSpin as mentioned. In the post Disney era; he continues to work on projects even as early as last month when this article was re-written. He has worked on four Naruto specials, Naruto Shippuden, FLCL (OH YEAH!), Bleach, Blue Dragon, Clamp School, The Diary Of Anne Frank, Detective School Q and two 2014 productions: The World Is Still Beautiful and Yona Of The Dawn. Also, he did the artwork for the Playstation version of Double Dragon and did animation for ads and even some illustrations for Gundam Victory, although I'm not sure if it was the anime series, manga or video games.

Summary: Patricia Millereau-Guilmard began her career with IDDH on I, Renart; Clementine and The Little Malins (Maple Town) between 1986 and 1987. Les Petits Malins is odd because it originally was animated in Japan by Toei Animation. I'm guessing that it was decorating the opening titles since they added Gabby; which is a knockoff of Teddy Ruxpin (I believe the creators of Gabby were successfully sued by the Frosse estate later on). Then she moved to Belokapi in 1987 to work on Alex The Young Mouse, then to Label 35 in 1988 to work on Sharky & George and then The Little Flying Bears for Cinegroup. Then it was off to Walt Disney Animation France and Paris until it closed shop. From there; Patricia went to Neomis Animation to work on Asterix VS. Vikings and the Curious George movie. In 2006; she worked for Perseprod on Persepolis, for Xilam Animation on Lucky Luke: Go West in 2007, for Digital Salade on Aimee doing storyboards, for Pumpkin 3D/Bibo Films on A Monster In Paris in 2008 (and then did matte painting in 2010 for EuropaCorp), and then did illustrations for the 2010 Calander for Disneyland Resort in Paris. After that; in 2009 she worked for Autochenille Productions on The Rabbi's Cat, Les Armatuers for Martine (CGI series) in 2010, Approved For Adoption for Mosaique Films in 2011, then props for Minions Mayhem at Universal Studios in Orlando for Illumination MacGuff, Robin De Bois for Method Animation in 2012, Mune: The Guardian Of The Moon for Onyx Films (to be released in April of 2015 in France), Chronokids for Futurikon in 2013 (pre-production), and finally was working on as late as July of 2014 on Alvinnn! for Ouido Productions.

Summary: Dominique Monféry was born in France in 1965. After working as a layout artist for TV animation in the mid-1980s (Pif & Hercules, The Smoggies, Rahan among others), he joined Walt Disney France as an assistant animator in 1989, working on a number of TV and feature projects including ‘The Hunchback Of Notre Dame’(1996), ‘Hercules’(1997) and directing ‘Destino’, (2003), an animated short originally conceived in 1946 by Salvador Dali and Walt Disney. It was nominated for an Academy Award in 2004. After that; he started working with Warner Brothers on projects like The Snurks, then the Weinstiens on Doogal, Paramount/Nickelodeon (Barnyard), Nelvana (Franklin movie), Lions Gate (Alpha & Omega 1,2 & 3), and many more. He is currently working on an untitled Pet's Movie (I think it's name is Gus; but I'm not sure) for release in 2016. Ever since Dominique left Walt Disney Paris due to it's closing (and even after being a production coordinator for Lilo & Stitch 2 and animation director for The Fox & The Hound 2); the projects he worked on are basically a large sample of all the animated films in mainstream America. Mostly as an animator I might add. The untitled Pet's movie is not Gus; but The Secret Life Of Pets. He is also working on a South African production called Timbo and has storyboarded 14 episodes of the 2012 remake of Zoom The White Dolphin.

Summary: Ritsuko formally hails from Matsuyama, Japan. In Japan, she worked on three non-Disney anime productions: Yume No Horshi No Button Nose, Yosei Florence and the 1989 special Soreike! Anpanman: Kirakiraboshi No Namida before becoming basically a Disney animator at Walt Disney Animation Japan until it's closing and had a hand in most of the Tinker Bell productions in recent years. She also worked on several Disneytoon productions as a character designer: Jungle Book 2, Mulan 2 and Bambi 2 among others. She has appeared on Made In Hollywood Teen Edition and Leo Little's Big Show as a special guest; and had a hand in The D Show video game for Disney Interactive. One final note; even though her Japanese name in Kanji is exactly the same as Kenji Notani (who has also worked in the animation business on Hey Arnold! and has similar credits (outside of two, one which is the sequel to Barefoot Gen); they are not the same person. They might be related in some way; but I have no evidence of this, so I assume they are not.

Summary: Worked on TaleSpin via Sean Newton Animation and is a regular worker for the National Film Board Of Canada. I have been practicing in the animation field since I graduated from art school, primarily working in the cultural sector. I was initially inspired by filmmakers who utilize paper cutouts to make poetic and expressive work. I began to make animation with photographic film, before the switch to digital technologies. To this end, I have a rich and acute knowledge of the craft. As production has evolved, where digital SLR cameras are now ubiquitous and software is user-friendly, there is so much innovation we can do today that was an obstacle in the past! Early on in my practice, I began to teach workshops and classes. This eventually led to me working full-time at Emily Carr University. I love to share my passion for the art form. Independent animation holds tremendous potential. I have had the distinction of working with scores of talented and dedicated students, many of whom currently work in the cultural and commercial industries around the world. I am proud of the many alumni who have diverse creative careers. For a time, I was a producer at the National Film Board in Vancouver, when I coordinated several animation projects at various stages of development and production, working closely with directors, animators, composers, and sound designers. I directed a film at the NFB, “Trawna tuh Belvul,” an interpretation of a sound poem written and performed by the respected Canadian poet Earle Birney. The piece depicts a train and its array of occupants traveling between Toronto and Belleville, Ontario. I have also worked on many productions, in the roles of animator and graphic artist. They include “Joe,” a short directed by Jill Haras, and “When the Day Breaks,” created by Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis. I am currently producing a film of my own concept, “SLIP!”, experimenting with methods that combine cutouts, three-dimensional sets, drawn animation, and digital compositing. In addition to the direction and animation, I will create the sound design.

Summary: Colin was born in England in 1964. He studied illustration at the Kingston School of Art where he gained a First Class Honors Degree. At college his work was influenced by Edwardian illustrators such as Edmund Dulac and Arthur Rackham.After graduating he worked as an illustrator for a year before entering the animation industry. Having thought the age of animated films had passed he was delighted to be part of the animation boom in the 1980’s.

He then gained valuable experience with Steven Spielberg’s Amblimation where he worked as a Background Artist and Art Director. In 1994 he moved to California to work on “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. Colin loved the experience of working at the heart of Disney, the highlight of which was the opportunity to view original artwork from Disney’s classic animated movies.

After nearly seven years in the U.S. Colin and his family moved back to England. He continues to work for Disney as a freelance Production Designer. In the summer of 2004 Colin was approached to illustrate a book called “Poison Diaries” for the Duchess of Northumberland. It proved to be wonderful opportunity for him to return to illustration.

He has also thoroughly enjoyed working as a designer for Illumination Entertainment on their hugely successful Dr Seuss movie The Lorax. He also worked on the sequel to their box office hit Despicable Me. Also; Colin has seen the release of his book Jack and the Baked Beanstalk, published by Templar/Candlewick.
